Better World Books Partnership
Better World Book Drives for Better Lives
Help break the cycle of poverty through education and literacy... while raising funds for your chapter!
Sigma Tau Delta partners with Better World Books (BWB) to provide an ongoing opportunity for chapters to participate in biannual book drives during the fall and spring semesters. Last academic year, over 50 Sigma Tau Delta chapters collected nearly 50,000 books from campus book drives!
BWB collects and sells books online to fund literacy initiatives worldwide. BWB will never throw a book away! Textbooks that cannot be sold are donated to Books For Africa, and if no reuse option is available, BWB recycles. This campus program provides each chapter an opportunity to foster global literacy, while at the same time raising funds for their chapter. BWB will partner with every chapter to host an on-campus book drive to benefit one of the following nonprofit global literacy partners of the chapter's choice:
- Books For Africa (Sub-Saharan Africa)
- National Center for Family Literacy (United States)
- Room to Read (South Asia and Africa)
- World Education & Development Fund (Latin America)
The BWB book drive is a turnkey operation. It supplies promotional materials, packing supplies, and covers all shipping costs.
